The Future of Work .:. One Big Open

On Friday, I spoke with Ben and Jon at Boston's Creative Mornings over at Space With A Soul. We spoke on coworking; connecting across industries as independent creatives, forming community and building a sustainable economy.  Our partnerships have evolved into our current endeavor One Big Open.  I refer to it as a playground for the creative entrepreneur.  A community to work hard and play hard. Ben defines it as the meta level that exists in the connecting tissue across physical coworking spaces. It's being open. It's about committing to being outward facing.  It's about saying yes. A few key points that were live tweeted:

  • Making the creative process visible makes it more valuable.
  • Hearing other people introduce you is a great way to find out if your branding is effective.
  • Coworking is all about possibilities.
  • It's easier to talk with a drink in your hand.
